THIS WEEK AT CONCORDIA

23 March 2018

​Concordia - Phase 2

To support Concordia’s long-term growth and continue our commitment to providing a world-class elite high school education in Hanoi, we break ground on March 1, 2018 on our new high school facility. This 5-storey, (approx. 8300 sqm), building will continue to enhance and develop our overall program.

The first floor is designed for and dedicated to the fine arts and student services.  Art studios with supporting space will allow students to design and develop their passions for the fine arts in painting, sculpting, drawing, and creating. A black box theater, music classrooms for both choral and instrumental groups and individual and small group practice facilities will enhance our performing arts program.   

The first floor will feature a large coffee house atmosphere with space for high school students to collaborate and work with faculty and staff.  A college counseling center and the admissions office will move to the new building.

The second floor will focus on a second gymnasium, locker rooms, a fitness center, and a dance studio.  

The third and fourth floors will have classrooms and lab spaces, which will promote the school’s applied learning programs. The fourth floor will also have an outdoor garden area for students and staff to enjoy the outdoors.  

The fifth floor will be finished at a later date based upon the specific needs of the school.

The entire facility has been designed to promote energy efficiency and provide students with opportunities to learn how buildings work, and we aim to be LEED silver compliant - making it one of Vietnam’s few “green” buildings.

Most importantly, we are working closely with both the construction team and Van Tri Golf Course management to keep the existing school area free of dust and debris, by implementing proper dust barriers, wetting techniques, and other environmentally-appropriate methods to reduce impact on surrounding land and air.

Construction is scheduled to begin in the spring of 2018 and the school plans to start using the space at the beginning of the 2019-2020 school year.  

The high school students (grades 9-12) will move into the new space and the middle school students will expand on the third floor of the current building.  

We look forward to celebrating and sharing this new world-class facility with you!

AP Calculus

AP Calculus AB students are studying differential equations which model exponential growth and logistical growth, a university-level look at how to achieve maximums and minimums. In next semester’s AP Calculus BC class, students will create polynomials of infinite length and represent sine, cosine and tangent.

Calculus BC is a 2nd term university-level course and a gateway to upper level physics.

“My friend is in her 1st year of university in Canada, and when I talk to her, I realize we are doing the same course. So what we’re learning now will put us ahead of our classmates in university.” - Linh, Grade 12

Math - Slope

Middle school math students are redesigning the stairs in an effort to demonstrate an understanding of slope and how to calculate it.

Concordia’s middle school curriculum pushes students to see real-life applications to the subjects and material they’re learning - making sure they “know” and understand the material, moving past memory to understanding relationships.

“We learned how to calculate ‘rise and run’ and how to work together to use time effectively. “ -Jonathan, Grade 8

“Our test was to calculate the height and width. We had to learn how to do a redesign taking out two of the old stairs but still reaching the same height.” - Kien, Grade 8

Rocket Science in Grade 8

Middle school students put Newton’s three laws of motion and gravity to the test by launching an egg 14 meters in the air via rocket and returning it safely to land. To safely launch their eggs, students must determine how much force the rocket engine is producing. The project is part of a unit on force, motion and energy and propulsion. Concordia’s middle school program works with students to move past concrete learning to be able to apply their skills in an intuitive environment.

“We learned a lot of practical things about theories of science, like how the size and material of the parachute and weight of the rocket affects how it flies, as well as how the wind and weather, which we can’t control, affect it.” - Hai Yen, Grade 8

Alumni Update

During the Christmas break, Concordia hosted our first Concordia Alumni Gathering, and invited our current seniors to get together in Hanoi at the home of the Head of School.  

Fifteen current and former students connected to reminisce about the past and talk about the joys and challenges of going away to university.  

Most of the Concordia graduates expressed they felt very prepared for their academic classes. The biggest surprise was how cold the weather is, especially for those who chose schools in the northern United States and Canada.  

Concordia will continue to host opportunities for our alumni to connect in the future, and will continue to report on their achievements.  If you ever studied, worked, or were connected to the Concordia Hanoi family in some way and no longer are at Concordia, make sure to join our Concordia Hanoi Alumni Facebook group here

Movember

MOustache + noVEMBER = MOVEMBER!

Concordia’s 5th grade classes raised VND 114,756,400 as they sponsored the men of Concordia to grow moustaches for “Movember”.

The 5th graders used their service learning project to raise awareness about men’s health during the month of November. The community donated money to their favorite ‘stache grower’ throughout the month and had a schoolwide bake sale. All proceeds were donated to SympaMeals, a local organization that supports cancer patients and families.
